Ich Bin N!ntendo, a young, fresh, "in-your-face" trio playing improvised noise-punk, are now out with their debut album on the Oslo-based label Va Fongool. On board they have two of the world's most critically-acclaimed noise-improvisers Mats Gustafsson and Lasse Marhaug. Ich Bin N!ntendo is a hard-hitting Oslo-based trio consisting of Christian Winther (electric guitar), Magnus Negaard (electric bass) and Joakim Heibø Johansen (drums). During the spring of 2012, they teamed up with Mats Gustafsson (winner of the Nordic Council Music Prize 2011) at a concert organized by the Concert Series "Lillesalen Konsertserie" at the Norwegian Students' Society in Oslo. The meeting was particularly fruitful and has resulted in a release that musically finds itself in the intersection between free jazz and grindcore and a focus on the free improvisation as well as a powerful rhythmic drive. The trio really pushes the boundaries of what the expression "sound" can handle, which is only heightened by the extreme lung capacity of the experienced Mats Gustafsson. Mixing and mastering was done by Norway's "noise-king," Lasse Marhaug, who was delivered the music with no strings attached, so he could do exactly what he wanted with the raw material. The result has been that all the already-powerful sound has been pushed to (and beyond) the absolute maximum, which makes the whole thing even more massive.
